WG, why don't you add an "I want to play single tier battle only - only applicable for tier X vehicles" option?

 

Tier 8 and tier 9 players would have to face tier X vehicles less often, and also tier X players who only want to play against other tier X in randoms would be happier. Win-win.

 

Obviously you can't add this in lower tiers, since everyone would tick it, but add it for tier X - that is the most difficult MM a tier X can get, so if I want to have the most difficult MM then let me get it.

If only more tier 10 players had the guts to demand this.

But most are up there just for a chance to murder tier 8 tanks, so sad.

For 3 weeks every 6 months, only between 18:00 and 24:00?

So you can earn bond in every game. Doubt they will do that.

ranked is crap.

 

But I would definitely use such a feature. I enjoy the occasional stomping of bottom tiers, but it's much more interesting dealing with people that can hurt you back. Same with Grand battles, I'd gladly play a bit of those if I could and there'd be the grand canyon map.

Couldn't you say the same for EVERY tier that has the possibility of meeting -2 MM?  What's the difference in T10 clubbing T8 and T8 clubbing T6?  A lot of players have been up in arms about not being able to club T6 in their T8s due to the recent updates.

Only if you play a tier 10 in any battle

I think he means any T10 battle that is single tier i.e. 15 T10 vs 15 T10, not 3/5/7 or 5/10 for example.  I thought this was the case too, can you actually earn bonds in T10 in ANY MM?

from the earlier patchnotes :

 

'Players can also earn bonds in standard Random Battles, in Tier X vehicles only (in the so-called battle level 12 battles). Bonds are awarded to those players who have earned 400+ base experience for the battle.'

 

You could be right but I was always expecting to only earn when there were 15 vs 15 Tier X tanks in a random battle and not being able to earn them when there were Tier * and/or 9... Will have to look later today.

Nop, only in full tier 10 battles, be it 15v15 randoms or grand battles.

You are right, you can only earn bonds in single tier X battles, so if my suggestion was implemented, one could earn bonds faster. I don't think it would seriously "disrupt the bonds economy" though, but WG decides in the end...

My guess would be that WG doesnt want you to since it would mean more and more people would play Ranked Battles less and less.

 

They invented Ranked Battles for the main opportunity to earn bonds. Not all players can participate in that so they are coming up with alternate ways for everybody to earn a few bonds. But my guess is they will not want those to replace the ranked battles.

 

So you cosing solo tier X battles would mean a steady income of bonds and that is something they do not want. They want you to provide with some small amount of bonds for just playing the game and nothing more.

Has to be an all Tier 10 game at the moment.

There should be an option to only fight tier 8s in your tier 10. Bashing defenceless tanks that have no chance of hurting me suits my play style.

This is an interesting idea, not sure how popular this would be among the player base though. Also, as you said this kind of option would change the distribution of Tier 8-10 tanks in the MM, so it is not exactly an easy change to make. I'll put this into my feedback report though to make our devs aware that there is a demand for something like this :)

 

Btw, I saw that there are questions about how to earn bonds in Tier X. To make it clear: Cerrently you earn bonds in your Tier X tanks if you play in a battle that has only Tier X vehicles, this includes 30vs30 battles as well.

I kind of feel the odd game where I get to stomp on tier 8s in a tier 10 is more than made up for by the 10-20 games I am facing tier 10s in my tier 8s.

Would that be so bad to take more tier X out of it? Tier 8 MM is rather bad atm due to seeing so many tier X games. Some tier 8's can manage just fine in a +2 ofc, while others struggle with it. Considering most hoped 30 vs 30 would help with it, but it's so rare to get into one. The impact was not as big as most wanted.

 

Considering how many did want 30 vs 30 to have it's own mode selection besides the chance in randoms. I guess many would want this to. Even more so with the upcoming changes to Obj missions, I suspect this would be a popular choice for those trying to do those. More damage to farm etc. Even more so when you can only earn bonds in pure tier X games.
